Having celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2017 with a ‘70 days of giving campaign’ that raised funds for a number of global and local charities, this year Faithful+Gould’s (F+G) managing director for the Middle East, Campbell Gray, and his local team, are committed to a new corporate social responsibility scheme, Race.

This three-year programme aims to reduce energy consumption and lower the impact of the business operations on climate change.

When it comes to staff development, one of the training initiatives that is under way this year at F+G, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, is called ‘Re-imagining the Future’. “An F+G/SNC-Lavalin training initiative arranged by the Women’s Business Network in the Middle East, the focus is to empower employees to be able to adapt to change positively and to understand and become part of our digital future,” according to Gray.

The multi-service consultancy has been involved with a number of recently completed projects, including the Bulgari Resort & Residences on Jumeirah Bay Island, where the company was the client’s representative and programme manager, and the Riviera housing compound in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
